Lee Health (Fort Myers, Fla.) has completed a $242 million renovation and expansion of its Gulf Coast Medical Center in Fort Myers.

The project included a three-floor vertical expansion with 216 patient rooms on top of an existing bed tower and a new three-story tower with 52 ICU rooms, a 16-bay dialysis suite, and three endoscopy and bronchoscopy procedure rooms.

To support the increased bed capacity, expansions and renovations also were completed in the clinical laboratory spaces, pharmacy department, food services, public dining space, back-of-house services, and the central energy plant.

Construction and development firm Skanska (New York) completed the project in a joint venture with Gates Construction (Bonita Springs, Fla.), while design was led by architecture firm HKS Inc. (New York).
